    Nice, i was wondering where to get those.

    what advantages/disadvantages does the dual lock have over velcro?

    oh yes, and a thought, be mindful of where you mount objects, even gps, be careful of airbags and side air bags..

    I have found that mounting anything in my car with adhesive is an exercise in futility.

    In the summer, it get well over 110 and adhesive melts. In the winter, it can get below 0 and the adhesive gets brittle.

    No, if I'm going to mount something in my car, it will be hard-mounted, unfortunately.

    If I could use adhesive, this stuff sure looks better than velcro.

    I've also always had adhesives melt and fail in the summer heat. I'm in a black truck in TX though. I've got a good way to keep my gun accessible.

    The only adhesive that I know works in AR heat is that double-sided tape used for auto body work. Not sure how strong it is for holding a gun up, but I only have to replace it on my rain deflectors every 4+ years, which is pretty good IMO for adhesive that's out in all weather and being pulled on by the wind 24/7.

    most automotive grade adehesive holds at 2500 psi its purple and cream colored that you mix together it will survive any heat if it can survive under the hood with a sbc thats whole life was at 4,000rpm It never got never cracked gooed etc.. They do make stronger stuff but its overkill if you ever want to remove it but good luck gettin it off no matter which one you pick

    100% silicone like you use in an aquarium. Holds fast once it sets up. Heat and cold will not make it let loose. Can be removed later but takes a little work.

    I have been using the one where the gun is mounted for years. No failures yet. Velcro sticks together, Dual Lock snaps together.- George

    If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous. If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid for?

    Beequick, I've considered that type of device, as it allows me to use one of the holsters that I didn't find terribly comfortable, but is still a serviceable holster.

    I also would prefer not to make any permanent modifications to my car if possible, so that would fit the bill there, as well.

    Xader, that was my stipulation for a car holster too. As I frequently carry iwb, I can't easily access my weapon in the car. This keeps it within easy reach should the need arise, and the holster you can buy from them has a mag pouch on it also.
